DIY Checkerboard Table

I’ve had this small table in storage since last year.  (Sorry for the small picture but it was taken with my phone and when I go larger it’s blurry.)

I purchased it from it from Goodwill and immediately had the idea to paint a checkerboard on it.

Using a ruler, I drew a checkerboard with 2 inch squares.  I used cookie cutters and traced the stars.  I then painted it with craft paint and sanded it down to give it a worn look.  After a coat of stain, it was finished.

I planned on putting it in the sunroom but it didn’t look good so to the booth it went!
